Branches will be contacting members with full details and any recommendations from the joint trade unions.

The Branch, together with GMB, met members and Councillors in Cunard Buildings to publicise the Pay Campaign. Cakes and freebies were given to members together with publicity leaflets. Liverpool City Council has agreed to support the pay campaign and is calling for an end to the pay cap.
